Guys I am in the middle of this DYI and I have to say this is very hard to do.<p>I have a 2002 GTI VR6 12v and the Crack Pipe is leaking really bad. <br>So far I have removed the battery, the air filter case, and the thermostat housing.<br>Now I am trying to remove the Crack Pipe but I just can not figure how to remove it. I want to know if the whole steps were written expecting the from bumper with the head lights, the radiator and fans off? <p>I have not removed any of these parts off and now I am stuck at the part where the crack pipe is next to come out. I do no have space to work from the front top of the engine and I can not reach the air pump. <p>I just want to know if is necessary to remove the front bumper just like in the picture, and if is necessary to remove it, how can you remove all that? <p>Thank you all.
